The Resvent iBreeze Auto CPAP machine has emerged as an innovative, feature-packed option for sleep apnea treatment in recent months. This is great news for those who have had a hard time finding a CPAP machine after Philips Respironics machines being recalled, which included many DreamStation models. The resulting surge in demand for ResMed AirSense 10 machines created a shortage of those products, and now users are left with fewer options.
Fortunately, the iBreeze APAP machine has been granted emergency use authorization by the FDA. iBreeze series machines are now widely accessible for people who are newly diagnosed with sleep apnea, or who simply need to replace a worn out machine.

What is the Resvent iBreeze?
While commonly referred to as an auto CPAP machine, the Resvent iBreeze is actually an APAP machine, which provides automatic positive airway pressure as opposed to continuous positive airway pressure. The difference is that an APAP machine automatically adjusts the pressure level on a breath-by-breath basis to meet your needs rather than providing the same fixed level throughout the night. This makes it easier for people who struggle to adjust to standard CPAP therapy. Find out more about the differences between APAP and CPAP.
Resvent iBreeze Features
The iBreeze is full of smart features including automatic altitude adjustment, leak compensation, power save mode, auto start, and much more. Interested in learning more about what sets the Resvent iBreeze APAP machine apart? Read on to find out more!
Humidification can make sleep apnea therapy much more comfortable, moisturizing the pressurized air to prevent dry mouth and nasal passages. The iBreeze series features an integrated humidifier that monitors water levels and will turn off automatically when levels are too low. There’s even a visible alert to let you know.
The heated humidifier can also detect ambient moisture and temperature in the room! The ideal moisture level is maintained throughout the night to prevent condensation from building up within the CPAP mask and tubing.
In addition to the iBreeze’s automatic pressure adjustment, Resvent’s Intelligent Pressure Release (IPR) algorithm function allows for a softer, lower pressure range during exhalation. This helps further customize the sleep apnea therapy experience for each user, allowing for easier exhalation that feels more natural.
Smart Ramp Settings
With Smart Ramp, the iBreeze starts out at a low air pressure that is barely noticeable, gradually increasing to full therapeutic pressure as you settle in and fall asleep.
iBreeze’s 3.5” LCD screen is easy to navigate to adjust your therapy, ramp, and comfort settings, even in the middle of the night without your glasses or contacts. There is an SD card option and the iBreeze is wi-fi enabled as well, so you can use the iMatrix sleep data management app to see more in-depth stats and information.
The iBreeze dimensions are 9.4" x 7" x 5", which means you can easily fit a lamp or alarm clock on your bedside table along with the machine (though the iBreeze can double as your alarm clock too!)
The iBreeze automatically senses and alerts you to air pressure leaks, which can happen if your masks doesn’t fit well or if your supplies are worn out. Full strength air pressure is critical to make sure your sleep therapy is effective! No one wants to wake up in the morning only to realize their therapeutic pressurized air was leaking out through the night. And not only does it detect a leak, its leak compensation feature will automatically boost your pressure to make up for it!
It can also sense and alert you when mask holes are blocked, which can happen occasionally if you shift positions during the night or if your bedding is obstructing your mask. Consult your user manual to find out more about how to configure the alerts and settings.
You can comfortably use any kind of BiPAP or CPAP mask you wish with the iBreeze’s standard 22 mm connection. This includes full face masks, nasal masks, and even those manufactured by another brand like the ResMed Airfit or DreamWear by Philips.
